Today I was able to take a few minutes and create my "wish list" of things I'd like to have in my classroom. I can hardly contain my excitement about getting my own room! I know that it's going to be a few crazy days to set up the room, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm open to them :) I will probably have one or two days to get it all ready!!!!!!!!!!!
On a different note, I am getting a new student tomorrow :) He stopped by for a tour today and seems like a nice kid. He has a slew of initials that have made there way into his IEP. What a shame :( I'm praying he will find his nitche at this place and will be able to control past behaviors in a positive environment. I feel very unprepared as one of the initials he has been diagnosed with is ODD....I don't know much, but I know that it's frustrating for both the student and teacher. I keep praying for patience and a whole lot of love that I will have the stability and strength to make him feel welcomed into our class.
That's the news for now :) One exciting Wednesday coming up....
